Can you create a link for instagram? It's one of our primary social accounts and would love for people to be able to connect more easily to our instagram page!

Hey @HannahB329,

 

Yes you are currently able to add an Instagram button to your email. If you create a new email in your account, there is a block option called "Social". If you choose to edit the "Social" block you will see the option to link your Instagram account.

Hello. Our organization has over 20 social media accounts (and growing) associated to Constant Contact. When I create an email blast and want it to autopost on our social media, all of our accounts are already checked on that post. I have to go in and uncheck all of the accounts I do not want that message to post on (example, an email blast specific to our popcorn fundraising does not need to post on our Facebook page about Pinewood Derby). To make it even more time consuming, once I've unchecked the first visible 5 checkboxes, I scroll down to numbers 6-10, uncheck #6 and it bumps me back to the top. So I can only uncheck the top 5 at one time, then the remaining ones have to be unchecked one at a time. Overall, it takes me 5-8 minutes, PER EMAIL BLAST to schedule social media posts. All I want is to have the list be UNCHECKED to begin with so I can select which social media accounts I want each email to post on. This won't affect people that only have 1-2 accounts. But, we have a newsletter that goes out monthly to 12 different districts. That's 12 different newsletters every month. That newsletter only gets posted on ONE social media account. It doesn't go out to all 12 districts, just to the district it pertains to. So when I'm scheduling 12 newsletters, with 12 different social media accounts, I've lost 60-90 minutes of work time to just schedule the post on social media. PLEASE PLEASE fix this!!!

After 10 years of being a business client, I am leaving constant contact and heading toward less complicated social sharing. The initial free Facebook postings of my Enews went away. The ability to clear all contacts that have never read my Enews....complicated. The ability to to lessen my 650 email list to only those that open my Enews the last three months.....complicated or impossible to do. Algorithm for that, probably, just not sharing it with us the client to make our business contacts easier to manage. So long Constant Contact.

@JoanB29 Sorry to hear this. So that I can best understand your feedback, was it your e-mail campaign you were attempting to share on social media? The current social share option is a free tool that is available for all customers.

Social Share is great, but we have lots of different campaigns with different social shares involved. It would be good to have a single place to see all the social share posts, just like the campaigns. Thanks.

sometimes we send emails to a specific list of preferred customers or others and we do not want to post the email on social share for the public to see. Your page makes it very difficult to send an email without social sharing. It is not user friendly.

I would LOVE the ability to have a button on each newsletter story allowing our readers to share individual stories to their own social networks -- Google+, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc. Possible?

Hi Constant Contact, the new system now includes social share links mandatory at the top of individual email archive linked copy, unlike the previous system which did not. For our use, we need to NOT have social links on selected archived emails, so please remove these OR add option to remove them. Otherwise we cannot continue to use CC after several years & need to move to a different email marketing service ASAP. Thanks, Matt

when it comes to social share you only allow links back to the email it is related too, however it would be very useful to be able to schedule posts not all related to the emails you are sending (because you are going to be posting more often than you are sending emails - obviously).

Social Media Icons

Status: Voting Open
by MedallionCabinetry on ‎06-23-2016 03:46 PM

Please add more options for social media such as an RSS feed (blog) and Houzz (interior design specific).  In addition, please "lock in" the social media icons per email campaign.  For example, I create email campaign 1 and set up the social media icons.  Then I create email campaign 2 with the social media icons linking to different social sites.  As soon as I save the social media profile for email 2 it changes the social media links in email 1.  This is VERY frustrating as we have 6 different brands that we send emails out for and we cannot use our email templates due to this issue. 

 

We tried to create our own social media icons by using images however, we cannot place more that two images side by side like we could in the old interface.  Also, please put back the ability to add a table into the new user interface - you took away this feature!  Having the ability to add a table would allow me a workaround to my first issue.  UGH!  Very frustrating - this is making us re-consider our decision to use Constant Contact for our email campaigns.

Pinterest is a growing part of my business. I'd like to be able to use it as part of the Social Share process.

As a customer who was using your social media area within our campaigns your recent update makes my life 5 times harder. Before it was a simple one push for all accounts now I have to go in and manually update each of our social media areas. This is a total pain as a customer who pays monthly 400 I will look at alternative solutions to do what I am looking for within our website.

Hi, For emails we copy from previous campaigns, it would be extremely helpful if the social sharing preferences were inherited in the copied campaign. We are finding we have to untick the number of times a campaign shares (changing option to 1 time doesn't stick across campaigns) and the channels it shares to. This takes a few extra minutes and, more importantly, leaves lots of room for error! Thanks for your consideration!

I do not like the way you post the campaigns that are created...when I see that same old same old on FB, I am not interested...it was much better when at least one of our own special photos was selected and posted. Your two or three repeat and do NOT attract attention.

Hi, Is there way to Social Share an email with a custom greeting without it saying "Dear Rebecca" in the email? It should revert to the secondary greeting option so it's not personalized for the mass audience. Thanks, Rebecca

Ugh, this new social sharing has multiple flaws, but this might be the worst one. The default should NOT make posts unwritten by account holders happen automatically just because one post was set up.

 

Unless the user selects and writes a schedule, automatic posting from the CC accounts should NEVER happen.

 

Default should be one post, and subsequent posts must be selected - and saved - in order to be enabled.

 

I had to delete two cheesy posts I didn't write (with 1990's clip art included, no less) that posted to our feed unwanted. Please, CC -- disable this immediately. We all are working so hard to carefully manage our brands and this kind of unwanted, automatically-posted content just isn't welcome.
